Commendation for Interpretation Project

Judges' citation: Part of a broader redevelopment plan for the Esperance Foreshore, this transformational project that has given Esperance a strong focus around the historic Tanker Jetty, ensuring its history was captured and retold in a way that enriches the visitor experience. The signage complements the landscape and incorporates salvaged pylons from Tanker Jetty.


In 2001, the Shire of Esperance began the planning of a major upgrade of the town site shoreline and adjacent foreshore from which the State Registered Tanker Jetty extends. Creative Spaces was engaged in 2014 to ensure the development of Tanker Jetty and its history was captured and retold in a way to enrich visitor experience. It included interpretive signage, panels and sculptures.

The interpretation is also part of a broader redevelopment plan for the Esperance foreshore that includes landscaping, recreational facilities, and renewal of the jetty services.
